-HONOURABLE MENTION of Waste Pavilion Competition


Pallets and egg-cardboards are two waste materials used in Fiber Cabin. 


Everyday thousands of pallets are thrown away to landfills after transportation of goods globally. Pallets are high fibrous materials which is the main substance of a tree. EU pallet -1200x800x150mm- is selected among various pallet alternatives which can also be interpreted as different sized wood layered by different sequences. A designer needs a minimum of 9 pallets to build one living section. Disassembling gives the designer flexibility to design cabins suitable for different environments and climates by changing the openness level of the facade by reorganising the intervals on the pallet.


On average, the egg-cardboard waste a person can produce is 34 pieces yearly. Egg-cardboard is made from compressed paper pulp which can be used as natural insulation. Shredded egg-cardboards are blended with flour and water, and poured on moulds till they are fully dry.


The structural approach can be considered as the minimal use of craftsmanship. Wooden blocks and various hardware are used in the design alongside pallets to combine different structural relations. The construction starts by assembling wooden blocks with nuts and bolts. Later, differentiated pallets can be placed between the wooden blocks as facade elements.
